Brothers & Sisters,
After the conference call I had with our District staff this week, I thought I would give you a short update on the District.
As of today, all of our shops are at full employment. A majority of shops have introduced policies regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). I have instructed the staff to communicate with every employer to negotiate the working conditions concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Next week, I will hold conference calls with each Local Lodge on the current state of our membership and Union.
Please keep your thoughts and support for our 23 members of Local 1346 on strike in Galion, OH.
As a point of reference, the International has approved meeting dispensation for the months of March AND April 2020.
We will continue to keep you updated as news becomes available. As you know, things are changing, not daily, but hourly, for more information feel free to follow us on our Social Media accounts on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter or www.iamdistrict54.com
Wishing you and your family good health.
T. Dean Wright, Jr.
President & DBR
